Abstract

Background: The oral provocation test (OPT) with culprit drug is the gold standard in the diagnosis of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug hypersensitivity (NSAID-H). Some authors have proposed that the total number of OPTs required to diagnose NSAID-H is much lower with acetyl salicylic acid (ASA) provocations, regardless of patients' reaction history, and less time consuming.
